Hey, I'm using a Mac with Photoshop CS3. I have an SX120 which produces DNG files that CS3 won't open because of an error about the module-sensor not parsing or something (I am seriously untechnical). I noticed the DNG files behave in the same way as the OP, with a dark thumbnail working, but everything else pitch black.
I have Adobe DNG Converter 5.6 but that returns an error 'parsing the file' when I try to do a dng -> dng conversion.
Anyone have any idea how I can get a workable image for Camera Raw from my SX120?
